In praise of the Golden Comet

Reading a post recently about Golden Comets from a new farm on our island reminded me of just how much I’m enjoying this particular breed of laying chicken.

In comparison with our previous flocks of Araucana, Dominique, Barred Rock, and Speckled Sussex birds, the Golden Comets are the rock stars of the laying community. They are a smaller bird which requires less feed, that produces larger eggs more consistently than most other breeds. And for those of you with close neighbors we have, they are relatively quiet. Highly recommended whether your flock is 2 or 200 birds.
